Andrea Sisson is an multidisciplinary artist working in installation, sculpture, imagery, video/film, assemblage, and writing. She is a J. WILLIAM FULBRIGHT SCHOLAR GRANT recipient and her collaborative work has been shown at São Paulo Museum of Image and Sound & Palais de Tokyo in Paris. A conceptual artist, her work is often anthropological and poetic - making work to propose a narrative or story.
Sisson began her career with a BA in Design (2010) where she created sculptural and wearable objects using wood, strings, and fibers. In 2010 after acclaim for her wearable-instrument, audio-design thesis & installation performance she was awarded a Fulbright Fellowship for academia and art. With the fellowship, Andrea lived in Reykjavik, Iceland creating the feature-length, experimental documentary, I Send You This Place. Sisson wrote and performs, and with collaborator co-created the imagery, music, and soundscapes. It garnered a New York Times Review, and Andrea was selected for Filmmaker Magazine’s 25 New Faces of Independent Film 2013.
Sisson's current work uses multidisciplinary elements in assemblage, and cultural research and theory is a consistent part of her process. Please see projects for more information.
